Teachers have faith in students

Teachers see daily what is required to help kids succeed

Editor, The Record:

While the federal Conservatives, in their faithlessness, waste the taxpayers’ money building ever-expanding prisons while crime rates continue to fall around us, we B.C. teachers are simply asking politicians to properly and adequately fund education in order for us to prevent the filling of those prisons.

We see what is needed to make it so, daily, in the struggles and suffering of the students who appear before us. To know what they need and not be able to provide those services is torturous. We care. We have faith in those children. Who will stand with us in this faith in our children?
